This is the moment a group of drama students rescue a cat which had become stuck inside a closed speaker cabinet.
The students were rehearsing for a new production at Amasya University in the city of Amasya in northern Turkey.
The members of the Amasya University Theatre Club kept hearing a cat miaowing but could not work out where it was coming from.

They found the noise so distracting they convinced instructor, Atilla Ozgen, to let them hold up the rehearsal while they found the animal.
Eventually, the students worked out it was coming from a speaker cabinet which they took outside before taking it apart to free the cat.
After taking the cabinet to pieces, a white cat jumped out and immediately ran away across the university campus.
Ironically, the student thespians recognised the stray cat as one they had rescued from a locked room earlier.
The video of the rescue is proving popular with animal lovers after it was shared on social media.
Netizen ‘Celalettin Celal’ said: “I greet my citizens with big hearts for this act”, while ‘Issan’ joked: “It must have gone deaf.”
The city of Amasya, the capital of the province of the same name, stands in mountains above Turkey’s Black Sea coast.
